Monthly Commentary

Members supporting members.  From financial services to renovations to training to automobile services -  consider services offered by our members today (home page or in the member directory) - we look forward to speaking to you and thank you for giving us the opportunity to help!

One of the question we ask in our membership application is - "Who is your target market?" How do you build a better understanding of your centers of influence to yielding a win-win relationship for everyone? Send us an email to [email protected] and we love to hear what's working very successfully for you. 

NEBA has hosted two luncheons in almost 5 years.   Our team is made up of volunteers - individuals who have their own business and/or in managerial/professional occupation.   With dedicated support with our Executive Assistant, Keisha Darichuk -  we are very pleased to add additional benefits to our members and guests with monthly luncheon events with the first one last month on July 25.   

Special thanks to Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott, Edmonton North - a major sponsor for our monthly luncheon.  Thank you for your support to businesses and individuals to create an environment for growth, education and networking activities. 

Our last luncheon on July 25 with Guest Speakers: Julianna Cantwell (JUNA Consulting Inc) and Earl Shindruk (Optimax Benefits) - great information and ideas to attract and retain successful employees to your company.  Special thanks to Councillor Jon Dziadyk (Ward 3 - City of Edmonton) and Councillor Darren McCann (Town of Gibbons) for joining us at this event.  Thanks to Kristine Page with World Financial Group for showcasing how she can help with her tradeshow table at the luncheon event. 

North or South - there's increased activity in the political front.  One waits to see when the fall election will be called.  What issue(s) stands out for you the most in making that final decision on who to support? 

Hope you are enjoying your summer and look forward to seeing you at our upcoming events if you are able to join us:
